    Hello, Looking for some help in SECURING an Instagram account. It is being hacked, but I can always recover it with the OG e-mail. But it looks like the hacker is always getting it back. How can I secure it?

    Thank you for your time.

    There’s plenty to learn from this experience and all of them are unfortunately very basic which we just ignore until we become a victim. I changed all my passwords to a more secure one, enabled two-factor authentication whenever available, and made sure I’m aware what accounts are connected to what emails.

    But I can still get it back though... I am not recovering it for now, but I can whenever I want. I will recover it when I know I can make it 100% secure... But I need help securing it. I think he might be able to get back in... Idk what to do to secure it.

    You have to ask yourself, how is he getting it back in the first place? If you change it completely and then he gets it back yet again, he either has access to your email or access to your computer's passwords (backdoor, keylogger, etc). If I were in your place, I'd reformat my computer already the first day and after that change all of my passwords.
